I woke up on Monday and decided it was a stay at home kind of day...I called it a "Mental Health" day in my email to my more than understanding boss and made the most of it. Somehow, the remote landed on "Less Than Zero"...not the best movie for getting rid of the blahs...but I always seem to turn to those 80's stand by movies of my youth when I am looking to get lost somewhere. I felt a twinge of guilt about the luxury of it all...laying around the house all day doing absolutely nothing. The old self talk saying, "Maybe you should have just gone to work"...and..."it's a beautiful day...get out and DO something". Something stronger than myself said that I should just rest and that is what I gave myself permission to do. So, whatever it is you do to rest, or tune out, or un-plug...don't forget to give yourself the gift and the permission to do so. The rest did it's job to restore and life goes on.
Some of my favorite "go to" movies...children of the 80's are you with me! :)
